About

I’m just a simple country girl who grew up in the suburbs and lives in the big city….

One Crafty Lady is an unadulterated grab bag of musings and fun finds from my life in Chicago as a dance writer, educator, and freelance everything else.  Oh, and I’m also a Betty Crocker wannabe, globetrotter, idealist renaissance woman, and a staunch advocate for exercise and the arts.

Who’s the lady behind One Crafty Lady?

I’m Lauren, and since I’m generally confused about what I want to be when I grow up, I do a little bit of everything.  Primarily, my days consist of  teaching and writing.  As a Certified Master Composter, you can often find me arm deep in worm poo, parusing my neighborhood farmer’s market, and generally speaking up for local and sustainable food culture. I like to hike, bake scones, and dig in the dirt.  I have a fetish for 50’s housewives and worms live in my kitchen.

Oh, you want the official bio?  Sure:

Lauren Warnecke, MS, ACSM-CPT is a Chicago-based dance writer and educator.  She holds degrees in Dance (BA, ’03) and Kinesiology (MS, ’09) and is currently a full-time Clinical Instructor for the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition at UIC.

Created in 2009 as a platform for dance-based discourse, Lauren owns and operates Art Intercepts.  She is a contributing author/blogger at Dance Advantage, 4dancers, and the Huffington Post, and was featured on a panel of nationally reputed dance writers at the 2012 Dance/USA conference in San Francisco, CA.  Lauren freelances as a production/stage manager, choreographer, and grant writer, and is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine.
